“In this free-to-play game Babu, the player presses buttons on the screen to fly through the sky and space collecting bananas to keep Babu (the player character) up in the air! Using clouds and other awesome boosts to propel Babu higher and further.
“The player has to watch out for storm clouds and meteors lurking in the skies or equip shields to protect themselves. Through collecting and earning coins the player can unlock awesome boosts such as rockets, jet-packs, propeller hats, firing barrels, slingshots and rainbows, which will help blast Babu further and higher than before and setting new high scores!,” notes the developers.
